    Obviously no cultivation advice needed here ; well done for growing that from seed image

    I have a large specimen of the same which lives outdoors in the summer months , and is kept 'semi-dormant' in the lower light winter days @ about 15 C in a spare sunny room . Mine gets plenty of rainwater in the summer , fresh-air , plant food and light ; all encourages more robust leaves and sturdy stems .

    My only advice is not to water too much in winter ; lower light levels plus the warmth of a room leads to etiolated growth , (that is weakened leggy growth) .

    Well done again !
